FOXBOROUGH — He might be able to leap over a moving car — more on that later — but receiver Brandon Lloyd is hoping the second half of the Patriots’ season finds him jumping into the end zone more often.

Lloyd, discount dramamine online signed to a three-year, discount dramamine online $12 million deal in the offseason, discount dramamine online began his Patriots career with a bang: five catches in Week 1, discount dramamine online eight the next week, discount dramamine online then a season-high nine (for a season-high 108 yards) the week after that.

Save for a six-catch, discount dramamine online 80-yard game at Seattle, discount dramamine online Lloyd’s numbers have dipped a bit since those first three weeks. Discount dramamine online He’s been held to three receptions or fewer in four of the Patriots’ last five games, discount dramamine online including a single 6-yard grab in the overtime win against the Jets on Oct. Discount dramamine online 21.

His most recent game — the 45-7 victory over the Rams in London — saw Lloyd catch just two passes. Discount dramamine online Both, discount dramamine online though, discount dramamine online went for touchdowns, discount dramamine online possibly a positive sign as the Patriots get set to come off their bye week with a home game on Sunday with the Bills.

Despite the week off, discount dramamine online can Lloyd carry over that momentum of getting into the end zone?

“It was two catches, discount dramamine online” he said.

True, discount dramamine online but both went for touchdowns. Discount dramamine online Won’t that help his confidence?

“It was two catches, discount dramamine online two touchdowns, discount dramamine online” Lloyd said. Discount dramamine online “We still have a lot of work to do.”

Lloyd has made it his goal of establishing good chemistry with quarterback Tom Brady, discount dramamine online but knew it wouldn’t happen overnight. Discount dramamine online Halfway into his first season, discount dramamine online it remains very much a work in progress.

For Lloyd, discount dramamine online and for Brady.

“I think I said earlier, discount dramamine online in the spring, discount dramamine online that I don’t think this year we’ll be at a point where we’re like, discount dramamine online ‘All right, discount dramamine online we got it, discount dramamine online’ because we still have so much work to do, discount dramamine online” Lloyd said. Discount dramamine online “We’re working hard to improve on that, discount dramamine online week by week and day by day, discount dramamine online but it’s a group effort, discount dramamine online and that’s what we’re moving forward with.”

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Discount dramamine online We just keep working at it, discount dramamine online so we go out there in practice and we work on things and Coach [Bill Belichick] tells us things that we need to do better. Discount dramamine online We’re always trying to make those improvements. Discount dramamine online I think you just have to keep going out there to work at it and see if it can be better each day.”

With 37 receptions for 435 yards and three touchdowns, discount dramamine online Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, discount dramamine online which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, discount dramamine online448 yards. Discount dramamine online That number appears safe, discount dramamine online barring an exceptional second half, discount dramamine online but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, discount dramamine online combining with receiver Wes Welker and tight ends Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez to give Brady plenty of powerful options through the air.

That’s the great aspect of the Patriots’ offense. Discount dramamine online It could be a different standout every week, discount dramamine online either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

“The teams that I’ve been on, discount dramamine online regardless how talented that I’ve been compared to other pass catchers, discount dramamine online I’ve never been declared a No. Discount dramamine online 1 target, discount dramamine online like a Larry Fitzgerald or a Calvin Johnson, discount dramamine online where it’s clear, discount dramamine online” said Lloyd, discount dramamine online who is in his 10th season, discount dramamine online but is already on his sixth organization. Discount dramamine online “Coming to a team like this, discount dramamine online it’s natural for me, discount dramamine online to make sure that the chemistry between me and Tom is there so when he needs me as an option, discount dramamine online I’ll be available for him. Discount dramamine online They want me to be open, discount dramamine online and they want me to catch the ball.”

Targeted 69 times this season, discount dramamine online Brady and Lloyd are missing almost as often as they’re connecting. Discount dramamine online What felt forced early in the season is now a normal part of the offense: Lloyd, discount dramamine online working mostly on the outside, discount dramamine online using his speed and jumping ability to make plays downfield.

That jumping ability was on display in a video that surfaced this week from over the summer, discount dramamine online when Lloyd appeared to leap over a Smart Car moving at 35 miles an hour. Discount dramamine online Impressive, discount dramamine online but Patriots fans would prefer to see him soaring into end zones in the second half of the season, discount dramamine online when championships are decided and playoff posturing begins.

“It seems like the games are a lot bigger, discount dramamine online they mean more, discount dramamine online they’re more important coming into the second half of the season, discount dramamine online coming into November and December, discount dramamine online” Lloyd said. Discount dramamine online “Things are starting to shake out in the conferences and the divisions, discount dramamine online so you have stuff you can look forward to, discount dramamine online stuff that you can improve on.”
